Particles and the Periodic Table

Interactive Periodic Table.  

Did you know - there is about 6 kg of gold per cubic kilometre of sea water. The oceans contain more than one billion cubic kilometres of water which means there is 6 million tonnes of gold in the Earth's oceans.

 Darwin in Space

 
To celebrate Darwin200 and the International Year of Astronomy, the British Science Association and “the Future is Wild™” are launching an imaginative nationwide school competition to explore what Darwin might have discovered if the Beagle had taken him, not to the Galapagos Islands, but to a new planet where life exists!
Click the image below for logobse.gifmore details.

The best scientifically explained life form in each age group will win a Nintendo DS and game and a fantastic interactive 'The Future is Wild' education pack and game for their class.

Planet Super Powers!

Brought to you with a KA-BOOM! by Science Communicator Dr Elsa Ekevall, AKA her alter ego - Miz Ingenuity. Take it away, Miz!

GOSH! I have a feeling someone is watching me but nobody is here. Hmm ... on the CCTV screen it looks like Supergirl is outside. UH OH! It's her nemesis Lesla-Lar...

Exoskeletons and Vision Powers
Lesla-Lar is a scientist who looks exactly like Supergirl. She invents a device that switches Supergirl's powers: strength, speed, invulnerability, flight, various extra sensory and vision powers to her. But did she really need to invent a switching machine?

She could have designed an exoskeleton to make her invulnerable and give her superhuman strength, speed and stamina. Flight could even be possible with fold-away wings and a jet pack - if she can work out where to safely store all the fuel required!

So what about extra sensory and vision powers?
Let's leave the extra sensory bit to the psychics and focus on super vision. She should have gone to Specsavers and bought a pair of customised 'bionic glasses' that connect to a microchip in the retina. With the right cameras, transmitters and receivers built into her glasses she would be able to detect most of the electromagnetic spectrum and have telescopic and microscopic vision. Don't have the technology to make 'bionic glasses' why not make cat's eyes instead?

Captain T
Captain T (designed by pupils at Gracemount High School) was rebuilt from titanium and has 10 times the strength, speed and height of a normal human. His bionic eye has a heat sensor and telescopic vision. Gun fire bounces off his exoskeleton and his helmet contains a computer with a screen that pops over his eye.

What about a 'bio-inspired' vision power?
Bats do it, dolphins do it, even a rare Chinese frog does it and your first picture was probably taken using it. What is it? Ultrasound imaging or echolocation - using sound to view objects

What other super powers could be 'bio-inspired'?

Visit Planet Super Powers! to enter the competition and find out more about possible super powers.

Thanks Elsa! See you next week.

Electricity

   

 explorehvc.png

Interactive timeline - how was the electricity made when your grand parents were your age?   

Did you know -  a bolt of lightning contains enough energy to toast 160,000 pieces of bread. Unfortunately the bolt only takes 1/10,000 of a second – so turning the bread over might prove difficult.
